G-Dragon Shares What Sets Big Bang Apart from its Competition
G-Dragon shared what he thinks sets Big Bang apart from its juniors like SHINee and EXO, stating "We appeal by making our own music."
G-Dragon appeared on the June 18 broadcast of jTBC′s News Room, where he sat down with anchor Sohn Suk Hee.
In response to Sohn Suk Hee′s question, "Competitors like EXO or SHINee have released albums and are currently promoting. What would you say differentiates [Big Bang from them]?" G-Dragon said, "What makes us different is that we make our own music, and the fact that [the songs] appeal really well to the public and that the public likes the song."
When Sohn Suk Hee exressed his concern, saying "Don′t you think EXO and SHINee fans will get mad as soon as they hear us talking like this?" G-Dragon answered, "They might get mad, but it′s the truth so there′s nothing we can do about it."
Sohn Suk Hee continued, "So making [music] is what′s important," to which G-Dragon said, "It can′t not be important. If I were to sing a song given to me by a composer, personally, I′m not confident. I don′t know about other people, but because I′ve been expressing myself through the music I made since I was young, I think that I would struggle to express [another composer′s song] compared to other singers."
Meanwhile, G-Dragon announced Big Bang′s ′MADE Series′ with his members on May 1, returning as a group for the first time in three years, and they′re currently in the middle of a world tour. G-Dragon recently opened a modern art exhibition, featuring collaborative projects with 14 Korean and foreign modern artists as well as pieces from his personal collection.
G-Dragon′s exhibition PEACEMINUSONE: Beyond the Stage will be showing at the Seoul Museum of Art from June 9 to August 23.
